“In line with our global strategy, we invested close to 3.4 million Euros in our Softlines Lab network in India, which ensures that we are covering all the major sourcing locations which are important for the textiles, leather and footwear industry in India. Our Gurgaon Lab works as a centre of excellence for other two Labs in Bangalore & Tirupur.” added Mr Ruhle
